Firesight Marksman

Postby Unorthodoxy » Thu May 18, 2017 11:19 am

Are they gone? I looked at the new Tau profile for Sniper Drones and they are hitting on 5+ and showing no Firesight Marksman in their profile? Is that because the Firesight Marksman is now separate from the unit? Hmm... super not excited about that missing information... Anyone hear anything about that?

It's possible the Marksman is bought as a character now. It doesn't really make sense to field the drones on their own, a couple 5+ shots aren't a huge threat. Of course if you can buy him as a character, then it's possible you can apply his bonuses elsewhere. We're just going to have to wait and see.

I'm thinking quite a few things will be taken as characters now. Shapers, for one thing. His bonuses (to wound and LD) might apply to multiple units around him, for instance. There'll be a bunch of changes coming down the pipe, we know that much. Shouldn't be too much longer either, judging from rumors that pre orders are up next week.
